Endangered Plants

You Can Help Save at Home

Backyard bird lovers will appreciate the fact that the heads of these flowers tend to attract goldfinches and other bird varieties.

Vasevine  (Clematis viorna)

It’s important to note that deer love vasevine, so gardeners should take humane measures to protect seedlings from these animals.

This variety is full of surprises, and it will only flower for the first time several years after being planted.

This tree produces a subtle but sweet fragrance that attracts butterflies and birds, making it a great pollinator garden addition.

Possumhaw Viburnum (Viburnum nudum)

It produces year-round beauty with its dense growth habit and showy white flowers that bloom in mid-spring, followed by coral-red berries in the fall.

These cacti are an important food source for wildlife, especially birds.

This showy shrub is native to the Appalachian Mountains, where it often grows on steep cliffs and mountainsides.

Baseball Plant  (Euphorbia obesa)

This quirky-looking variety can thrive as a houseplant and be grown outdoors in some U.S. climates (or taken outdoors for summer, then back inside for winter).

This pretty orchid is a sight to behold, but it’s unfortunately threatened or endangered in most states where it grows.
